General Comments:

All of the web services (Replica␣on, QuickBooks, Email etc..) require ports open, mainly ports 80, 1433 and 1434 but this may change if we have to work around any firewall rules etc…
All of the tablets are pointed to the same IP Address. This is normally free for a business class line, or +$10 if on a residen␣al line.
